Drive through the often-unseen, quieter side of Holland’s villages to the 17th century city of Delft, famous for the Delft Blue Pottery and the birthplace of the famous Dutch painter, Vermeer. Upon arrival, join your guide for a short walk through the narrow streets of this charming, 17th-century city of canals, cobbled alleys and gabled houses.
Others may turn to mass production, but the Delft Factory painstakingly creates its famed earthenware using the same methods employed since the factory’s founding in 1653. Enjoy a guided tour of the factory and watch artists demonstrate the hand painting that makes each piece of Delft a work of art. And of course, no trip to Delft would be complete without an opportunity to shop at the Delft Factory store.
Your tour continues to The Hague, seat of the Dutch Government, where during a panoramic drive you’ll pass some of the main sights including the spectacular Peace Palace, where the International Court of Justice is situated. Experience this aristocratic city with large squares, broad streets, imposing buildings, fine mansions and palatial embassies.
